By SHREEYA SINHA:

Canadian authorities identified the gunman in the deadly shooting Wednesday of a soldier guarding the National War Memorial in Ottawa as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a Canadian born in 1982. Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau, who had a criminal record, recently converted to Islam, senior American law enforcement officials said. He was shot and killed in the attack.

The episode was the second deadly assault on a uniformed member of Canada’s armed forces in three days, and the latest in a growing list of attacks in the West against soldiers, and in some cases civilians, by individuals who have professed their affinity for radical Islam or sympathy to militant ideology.

Oct. 20, 2014: Hit-and-Run Kills Canadian Soldier

Martin Rouleau-Couture, the owner of a small power-washing business, drove his car into two Canadian soldiers, killing one of them, at a strip mall in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. The authorities suggested it was a terrorist attack, but little had emerged about the motives of Mr. Rouleau, who converted to Islam last year.

Mr. Rouleau’s Facebook postings had extolled Islamic State violence, expressed anti-Semitic sentiments and denigrated Christianity. His family became increasingly concerned about his possible radicalization and contacted the police and the imam at the mosque where Mr. Rouleau prayed. He was fatally shot by the police during the attack.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police told NBC News that Mr. Rouleau was “one of the 90 individuals the government had already announced it was monitoring.”

Sept. 25, 2014: Woman Is Beheaded in Oklahoma

A man beheaded a co-worker and stabbed another employee at a food processing plant in Oklahoma before he was shot and wounded by a company executive. The suspect was identified as Alton Nolen. Mr. Nolen, who has a criminal history, had just been fired from the company, Vaughan Foods, and “he recently started trying to convert some of his co-workers to the Muslim religion,” said Jeremy Lewis, a spokesman for the police in Moore, Okla.

Law enforcement officials said that Mr. Nolen had recently converted to Islam, but that the F.B.I. had found no connection between him and the Islamic State or other terrorist groups.

Sept. 26, 2014: ISIS Lieutenant Tries to Coordinate Attacks in Australia

Mohammad Ali Baryalei, a former Sydney nightclub bouncer who is now an Islamic State lieutenant, made a phone call from Syria to a 22-year-old Sydney man and asked him to carry out a beheading in Australia on camera, the police said.

It is one of the few known attempts by the Islamic State to carry out a terrorist act outside the Middle East.

Days after the Sydney man was arrested, an 18-year-old man stabbed two counterterrorism officers outside Melbourne before one of the officers shot and killed him. The police described the man as a “known terror suspect” who had been seen carrying an Islamic State flag at a local shopping center.

Psychological Warfare and Terrorism

napoleon_and_his_general_staff_1867-660x350-1414054375Via Raymond Ibrahim’s blog:

By William Kilpatrick

Crisis Magazine

In a recent column, I suggested that one of the best ways to fight terrorism is by undermining the terrorist’s ideology. For example, by undercutting the belief that seventy-two virgins await the young martyr in paradise, you simultaneously undermine the will to fight.

That’s not to say that the standard method of fighting terrorists—with guns—can be safely abandoned. The propaganda war works best when it is reinforced by the shooting war. The more convincingly force is applied on the battlefield, the more convincing will be the ideological arguments.

If, for example, you’re an ISIS fighter and you see your buddies on the battlefield fall victim to an occasional bomb or bullet, that won’t necessarily shake your faith in the brides-to-be. As long as the war is going well, and as long as there’s a senior officer or two around to assure you that your fallen comrades are now enjoying their reward in paradise, your basic assumptions can remain intact. If, on the other hand, you look around and see nothing but death and destruction and no surviving officers to make sense of it all, you may begin to doubt the whole enterprise.

Just as importantly, a devastating defeat will have a salutary effect on people far away from the battlefield. The fellow in Brussels or Brisbane or Boston who’s thinking of joining the jihad will now have second thoughts—not only about ISIS, but also about the ideology that fuels it. Even fanatics can become realists in the face of overwhelming facts. In short, doubts can be accelerated by defeats.

Most people, of whatever religion, like to think that God is on their side of the battle, but in Islam belief and battlefield success are more closely linked than in, say, Christianity. Indeed, the seemingly miraculous military successes of Muhammad and the caliphs who followed him were taken by Muslims to be a proof that Islam is the true religion. Conversely, the religion of Islam has never fared well when its imperialistic ambitions have been thwarted. After Napoleon’s invasion and subjugation of Egypt, and subsequent European conquests and colonization of the Muslim world, Muslims began to seriously question the efficacy of Islam. As Islam scholar Raymond Ibrahim observes:

It was one thing to hold unhesitatingly to Islam and Sharia when Islam was conquering and subjugating non-Muslims, as it had done for well over a millennium. It was quite another thing for Muslims to remain confident in the Islamic way when the despised Christian infidels were conquering and subjugating the lands of Islam with great ease—displaying their superior weapons and technology, not to mention all the other perks of Western civilization.

During the colonial and post-colonial era, Muslim nations looked increasingly to the West as a model of emulation, and increasingly they looked away from Islam. Religious fanaticism declined, the jizya collection and the dhimmi laws were abolished, and, according to Ibrahim, “By the middle of the twentieth century, the Middle East’s Christians were widely seen, particularly by the educated elites and those in power, as no different from their Muslim counterparts.” Islam had been so thoroughly defanged by mid-century that, if Americans thought about it at all, they thought of it in terms of comedy movies like The Road to Morocco or Broadway musicals like Kismet.

The point is that this more moderate Islam of the not so distant past was made possible by Western military power and by the secular strongmen who succeeded the colonial rulers. Likewise, the recent renewed appeal of fundamentalist Islam has been made possible by shows of force: the overthrow of the Shah in Iran, the defeat of the Russians in Afghanistan, the bombing of the World Trade Center and numerous other successful terror attacks, the Arab Spring revolutions and, most recently, the march of ISIS across Syria and Iraq.

Such victories against technologically and/or numerically superior forces create a psychological momentum which makes militant Islam all the more appealing to potential recruits. Psychological momentum, however, can be halted and reversed by decisive battlefield defeats. The idea that nothing is ever accomplished by war is not quite true—as evidenced by the current pacifist inclinations of our former enemies, Japan and Germany. In this respect, it’s heartening to see that some Catholic leaders are coming around to acknowledging that, on occasion, there is no alternative to military force. I recently criticized Cardinal Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State, for blaming terrorism on poverty and injustice, but in his address to the UN Security Council, he also called for intervention to combat the Islamic State:

My delegation wishes to recall that it is both licit and urgent to stop aggression through multilateral action and a proportionate use of force.

He was referring, of course, to the Catholic Church’s teaching on just war. One of the conditions of a just war is that force must be used proportionately. If you bulldoze my barn, I shouldn’t respond by burning down your house with all the people inside. The trouble is, when dealing with a group like ISIS, it’s difficult to say what constitutes proportionality. We are battling an armed force which also happens to have considerable symbolic significance for others. In figuring what a proportionate response would be, we have to take into consideration ISIS’ ability to inspire both lone-wolf and well-organized terror attacks around the world. Consequently, it’s crucial not only to degrade and contain ISIS, but to defeat it, and to defeat it in such a way as to crush the dreams of would-be jihadists.

As war historian Victor Davis Hanson has observed, successful military leaders strive to not only defeat the enemy, but also to discredit his ideology. This does not mean the killing of every last man on the enemy side, but it often involves the killing of the enemy’s dreams. After the defeat of Nazi Germany, Allied generals forced Nazi officials and thousands of nearby residents to take humiliating tours of the concentration camps and, in some cases, forced them to bury the dead prisoners. The prosecution of Nazi officials at the Nuremberg trials also helped to ensure that the Nazi dream would never rise again. Nazism was so thoroughly discredited as an ideology that, for decades after, no one—except for a few on the fringes—wanted to be associated with it in any way.

The Islamic State itself seems to fully understand the symbolic side of war. The crucifixions and ritual beheadings are not senseless acts, they are acts calculated to send a message. On one occasion, after capturing 250 Syrian soldiers, the Islamic State militants forced the prisoners to strip to their underwear and then paraded them in front of cameras before marching them to the place of execution. The message? Those who resist ISIS will suffer both defeat and dishonor; they fight for a worthless cause.

The ISIS campaign of psychological warfare, crude and ugly as it seems to the Western mind, has had the intended effect. Rallies to support ISIS have popped up in numerous Western cities, other Muslim groups have pledged their solidarity, and more and more Muslims are flocking to join its army. In ever-distracted America, football fans are abuzz about a penalty imposed on a Kansas City Chiefs player for prostrating himself in Muslim prayer after scoring a touchdown. Since Christian players are not penalized for similar behavior, fans were outraged. Meanwhile, on the same day, a much more significant sports-related event was playing out in Casablanca, Morocco. A video posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute showed a sizeable group of fans—perhaps one hundred—chanting “ISIS! ISIS!” and then “Allahu akbar, let’s go on jihad! Allahu akbar, let’s go on jihad!” American football fans—that is to say, Americans in general—might want to take note of the ever-expanding ISIS fan base. They might also do well to consider that the penalty ISIS imposes on losers is considerably more severe than fifteen yards.

If and when we get around to defeating ISIS, let’s hope we administer a psychological defeat as well—one that shows up not only the impotence of their fighting force, but also the emptiness of their vision. Else ISIS will rise again in some other form under some other name.

Exactly how this would be done is difficult to say. We are not, hopefully, going to descend to the level of displaying severed heads. And parading troops in their underwear is inconsistent with our concept of human dignity. Indeed, the whole idea of imposing a humiliating defeat goes against the grain of our highly developed sensitivities. Nonetheless, it seems time to reconsider our politically correct policy on waging war with terrorists—a policy which seems to say that war is simply a misunderstanding, and that after we’ve defeated you quietly and without fanfare, we will give you a clean cell and a copy of the Koran untouched by infidel hands because, of course, your religion has nothing to do with your terrorist behavior.

If we wish to avoid endless wars with jihadists, we should conclude our war with the Islamic State in such a way that Muslims around the world will rethink the notions of Islamic jihad and Islamic martyrdom. It’s not as improbable as it sounds. Not so long ago, historically speaking, Turks, Egyptians, and other Muslims who read the writing on the wall did rethink Islam. Faced with a West that was not only militarily powerful, but also culturally confident, they opted for a more muted form of Islam.

How Big Is the Canadian Terrorists’ Network?

1414063293375.cachedBy Tim Mak, Eli Lake and Jacob Siegel:
Canadian officials were quick to finger ISIS in this week’s attacks on government targets. But it’s still not clear whether or not the killers were part of a larger jihadist web.
Terrorists have twice attacked Canadian government targets this week, with a shooting Wednesday at the country’s parliament in Ottawa. Now Canadian and American authorities are trying to learn whether the killers acted alone or were part of a larger extremist network.

The mayhem caused by alleged Ottawa shooter Michael Zehaf-Bibeau occurred just two days after another man, Martin Rouleau-Couture, struck two Canadian soldiers with a car in Quebec—killing one and wounding another.

Full details on Zehaf-Bibeau are still emerging. But he appears to have been a 32-year-old native of Quebec with a history of legal troubles that predate his radicalization. Canadian journalist Domenic Fazioli reported that Zehaf-Bibeau had been arrested a total of five times for drug possession and parole violations.

Canadian reports paint the picture of a disturbed individual, who once told a friend the “devil is after him,” and whose father appears to have fought on behalf of rebels in Libya in 2011.

Former Minister of Public Safety Stockwell Day, who once oversaw Canadian security agencies in cabinet as a member of the ruling Conservative government, said he had independent information that suggested the two suspects visited the same jihadist web forums.

“It is likely there is a digital trail that suggests they accessed some of the same Internet chat rooms and websites,” he told The Daily Beast. “It appears the [Parliament Hill shooter] was using some of the same networks as the killer [from earlier this week], who killed an army officer… And it was interesting that ISIS apparently, or a source identifying themselves as ISIS, had a photo out of this guy in pretty short order.”

Speaking to the nation Wednesday evening, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was quick to link the shooting on Parliament Hill and the killing of a Canadian soldier earlier this week by “an ISIL-inspired terrorist,” using an alternate acronym for ISIS.

“This week’s events are a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world,” Harper said, pledging to “fight against the terrorist organizations who brutalize those in other countries with the hope of bringing their savagery to our shores.”

Last week, Canadian Security Intelligence Service director Michel Coulombe estimated that 130 people had traveled abroad to join in alleged terrorist activities. Eighty people had “returned to Canada after travel abroad for a variety of suspected terrorism-related purposes.”

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Letter to Harrods #StopQatarNow

Michael Ward, Managing Director Harrods, Ltd.

87–135 Brompton Road
Knightsbridge
London, SW1X 7XL
United Kingdom

Dear Mr. Ward:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.  The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar, the country who currently owns Harrods and its various holdings. In fact, Qatar owns vast dealings and large businesses throughout the UKQatar is directly funding terrorist groups and turning a blind eye to their other financiers operating within their borders.

Harrods was sold by Mohamed Al Fayed, its previous owner, to Qatar Holdings, part of the Qatar Investment Authority, the state’s sovereign wealth fund, in May of 2010 for a reported £1.5 billion. The sale was concluded by Qatar’s then prime minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al Thani, who was also chief executive of the wealth fund. Under his rule and guidance as the QIA’s boss, Qatar also owns or co-owns a number of other landmarks including the Shard, Europe’s tallest skyscraper, as well as large stakes in some major UK businesses. Now Harrods is facing a boycott due to Qatar’s support of Islamic terrorist organizations across three continents.

On June 17th, a meeting of the Henry Jackson Society, held in the House of Commons, discussed how a tribal elder in northern Cameroon, who runs a car import business in Qatar, has become one of the main intermediaries between kidnappers from Boko Haram and its offshoot Ansaru and those seeking to free hostages. It was alleged that embezzlement of funds going to Qatar via car imports might be disguising ransom payments. It was also alleged that Qatar was involved in financing Islamist militant groups in West Africa, helping with weapons and ideological training, and funding the building of mosques in Mali and Nigeria that preach terrorism and murder in the name of religion. London has become a veritable HQ for the Muslim Brotherhood, who are directly sheltered and supported by, financed by, and tied to Qatar.

In light of these clear and present security risks, we urge you to read the information below, which includes evidence that Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today.  It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent Jihadi groups to its own benefit and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

So the public has a fuller context of Harrods’ owner’s role in supporting and financing terrorist activities worldwide and their connection to Britain:

  • While on a trip to Qatar in March, 2013, Prince Charles announced that he had been taking private Arabic lessons so he could read the Quran. On the trip to Doha, where Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla hobnobbed with the terrorist-backing Al Thanis, the Prince revealed he is an enthusiastic student of the Quran.

After the overthrow of President Morsi of Egypt, Qatar became a place of refuge for Muslim Brotherhood agitators fleeing Egypt. On September 12th of this year, it asked several leading Brotherhood figures to leave. They did, but not in outrage or indignation; on the contrary, they apologized for causing embarrassment to Qatar.

  • Clearly, they felt a debt to the Qatari government (and a senior Brotherhood spokesman, Amr Darrag, confirmed this).
  • Qatar asked them to leave because of pressure applied by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Some went to London, where there is already a group of Brotherhood members in Cricklewood, under scrutiny from the authorities. Qatar remains home to an array of exiled Islamists and thus is a focus of suspicion for its activities financially and ideologically. Bahrain joined Saudi Arabia and the UAE in withdrawing its ambassador from Doha this past spring, demanding, among other things, that the Qataris shut down Al Jazeera and expel the Brookings Institution from Doha. It has been widely reported that Qatari money funds extremists in Libya and the Qatari military has trained militants there in the art of warfare.
  • The Emir of Qatar’s personal fortune and the country’s sovereign wealth fund are rumored to exceed £50 billion. Qataris own substantial amounts of real estate in Britain — such as the Shard, the Olympic Village, One Hyde Park, a part of Canary Wharf, the United States Embassy building in Grosvenor Square, the Chelsea Barracks development and Harrods. They have large stakes in the stock exchange, Sainsburys and Barclays bank. Almost all of Britain’s liquefied natural gas comes from Qatar, accounting for a quarter of Britain’s gas needs. Qatar has also bought, through bribery, the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
  • Qatar has funded extremists not merely in Syria and Libya, but also in Tunisia, Mali and Iraq. Another Wikileaks cable revealed Meir Degan, a former head of Mossad, telling the US that ‘Qatar is trying to cozy up to everyone,’ and warning America to close its bases there. They are actively funding ISIS, as well.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery and drug trafficking!

A car driven by a suspected Hamas member crashed into a crowd at a light-rail station in Jerusalem Wednesday, killing a three month-old girl and injuring eight others.

Israeli officials confirmed that the suspect, Abdelrahman al-Shaludi, is a former Palestinian prisoner from Silwan who may be a Hamas member. Security camera footage apparently recorded the car as it drove onto the platform of the rail station and struck innocent Israeli civilians.

Al-Shaludi was shot and killed by police as he tried to run away.

Hours later, dozens of masked Palestinians clashed with police forces in Silwan and Issawiya, setting tires ablaze and reportedly injuring a police officer following a fire bomb attack.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas of inciting violence that encouraged the suspected terrorist attack, the Jerusalem Post reports.

“This is how Abbas’ partners in government [Hamas] act. This is the same Abbas who, only a few days ago, incited toward a terrorist attack in Jerusalem,” he said.

This comes amid increased Palestinian attacks in Jerusalem, including rock throwing and Molotov cocktails.

A Hamas spokesperson said that if the incident at the rail station was a terrorist attack, it was justified.

Canadian Soldier Shot in Attack at Parliament Hill in Ottawa

OTTAWA — At least two gunmen traumatized the heart of the Canadian government on Wednesday, with one shooting a soldier guarding the National War Memorial and then entering the adjacent Parliament building, where multiple rounds were fired. Shooting also was reported at a nearby shopping mall.

Police officers rushed to secure the Parliament building and move occupants to safety as they hunted for what Canadian news reports said were possibly two or three assailants, in what had the appearance of a coordinated attack.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that one assailant was killed. The condition of the soldier who was shot was not immediately clear.

The shootings began about 10 a.m., just as the leaders of Parliament were holding their weekly meetings, suggesting the possibility of deliberate timing. Many of the lawmakers were rushed into secure rooms in the basement by guards.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper had been inside Parliament at the time of the shooting but was evacuated safely, Canadian news reports said. The entire area, known as Parliament Hill, was placed on lockdown as police reinforcements arrived.

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Letter to FC Barcelona #StopQatarNow

FC Barcelona (Press Office)
Avenida Arístides Maillol, s/n
08028-Barcelona

Dear Mr. Bartomeu i Floreta:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.  The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar.  Qatar Airways is the sponsor of FC Barcelona.  Not only has Qatar Airways been reported to be involved with significant narcotics trafficking, but the State of Qatar is a bona fide state sponsor of terror spanning at least three continents.  They are in part responsible for the ISIS genocide that is targeting Middle Eastern Christian populations.

jerseyOf all the shirts in professional football, none is more recognizable than FC Barcelona’s “Qatar Airways” jersey.  The red and blue striped advertisement for Qatar Airways, with its gold collar, is worn by men, women, and children the world around.  Yet given Qatar’s proven financing of mass murder and terror, one wonders who would wear this shirt if they understood that it was Qatar who financed and trained the Islamic State?

As the atrocities and bodies of innocents stack up in Syria and Iraq, it is tantamount to wearing a swastika on emblazoned on one’s chest.  This sponsorship and corruption is destroying soccer’s good name and brand, and is an embarrassment to fans around the world!

Moreover, in 2011, it is alleged that Mr. Mohammed bin Hamman, the former head of the Qatar Football Association, had deposited £2 million into the bank account of the daughter of a Brazilian FIFA official.  The money is believed to have been transferred into the 10 year old’s account by the then-president of FC Barcelona, Sandro Rosell.  This amounted to a bribe, and Qatar was subsequently awarded the 2022 World Cup.

Here are some pertinent additional facts regarding FC Barcelona, Qatar Airways, and terrorism:

  • The football club and Qatar Airways have been in partnership since July 2013. In February 2014, Qatar Airways announced it would fly a Boeing 777 “kitted out in FC Barcelona colors.”
  • In August 2013, it was announced that FC Barcelona would receive Eur30.5 million from Qatar Airways, as part of football’s “biggest shirt deal ever.”
  • Qatar Airways has been the central airline implicated in a narcotics smuggling route that has “exploded” from Argentina to Doha.
  • Across the Middle East, Christian minority communities have been targeted by ISIS for horrific, genocidal elimination. A German minister stated in August, “A story like this always has a history… Who is financing these troops [i.e. ISIS]? Hint: Qatar.”

Additionally, Qatar it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell, and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  A recent press report explained how a Qatari citizen was the moneyman for an Al Qaeda group in Syria.  His alias?  Umar al-Qatari.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

Michael Coren & Robert Spencer on Martin “Ahmad” Roleau, Lee Rigby-style terrorist in Canada

 

Published on Oct 21, 2014 by AlohaSnackbar01

Martin (Ahmad) Couture-Rouleau’s passport was seized by authorities who feared he wanted to go overseas to take part in terrorism, blocking him from leaving Canada and highlighting a dilemma facing security officials dealing with the threat of militants on home soil.

Couture-Rouleau was identified as a high-risk traveller and had his passport taken away.

He was arrested at the airport while on his way to Turkey, RCMP Supt. Martine Fontaine said at a news conference in Montreal, but there wasn’t enough evidence for police to charge him and detain him.

Couture-Rouleau, 25, was fatally shot after hitting two soldiers in a parking lot of a commercial plaza in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, a city about 40 kilometres southeast of Montreal.

One of the soldiers, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, 53, died of his injuries Monday evening. Police said the other soldier doesn’t have life-threatening injuries.

Officials who stop citizens from leaving Canada because of terrorism fears then face another problem: those persons remain in Canada, perhaps with the intention of causing harm to others.

RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson touched on it Tuesday on Parliament Hill: asked whether it was possible Couture-Rouleau became more dangerous after his passport was taken away, Paulson said “certainly that’s what follows from the analysis.”

“He was part of our investigative efforts to try and identify those people who might commit a criminal act of travelling abroad for terrorist purposes. So in that respect we were working him along with other suspects,” he added.

A top official at the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, speaking at a Senate committee meeting Monday, put the dilemma more bluntly.

“For every individual that we prevent, every extremist that we prevent from going overseas to engage in extremist activity, is one more individual that we have to investigate closely because they’re radicalized to the point that they want to leave,” said Jeff Yaworski, CSIS deputy director of operations.

“There’s nothing more that we can do with the budget that we have, except to prioritize internally as effectively as we can and I think we are doing that.”

Yaworski said the agency’s success rate “has been quite good.”

“I’d be foolhardy to say that we have all the bases covered. We do what we can with the budget that we have, sir,” Yaworski told senators.

The federal government has raised its internal threat level to medium due to an increase in “general chatter” from organizations like ISIS, but not because of a specific threat.

Couture-Rouleau was one of 90 people being monitored by the RCMP as part of 63 current national security investigations, the RCMP confirmed to CBC News Monday night. Paulson first reported the investigations to MPs on the House public safety committee earlier this month.

That covered “both people who intend to go [abroad] or people who have returned and have been referred to us by the service,” Paulson said on Oct. 8.

It included people suspected of being involved with extremism-related activities, including financing, not specifically to fighting alongside militants.

Legal documents show Couture-Rouleau converted to Islam in 2013. He went by Ahmad Rouleau on some social media sites.

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander, who has said his department is revoking the passports of those suspected of planning to travel abroad to commit terrorism, wouldn’t answer questions as he left a cabinet meeting.

On Tuesday, Paulson said the RCMP are investigating along with Quebec provincial police to determine the “breadth” of this incident and pursue every avenue.

Paulson said the RCMP don’t think Couture-Rouleau was connected to other sympathizers.

“We don’t suspect that, but we’re open to that and we’re concerned about that. So we’re going to be pursuing every investigative avenue to satisfy ourselves that we’ve eliminated that possibility,” he told reporters on his way out of the committee meeting.

A Quebec police spokesman said the RCMP are handling the investigation into the suspect and his motivations.

​On Monday, the RCMP said the integrated national security investigations team in Montreal, along with other authorities, worried Couture-Rouleau “had become radicalized.”

The Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement Tuesday, reiterating that federal authorities had confirmed certain elements clearly indicated Couture-Rouleau had become radicalized. Canadians should remain vigilant, the statement read.

“This was a despicable act of violence that strikes against not just this soldier and his colleagues but frankly against our very values as a civilized democracy,” Harper said in the House.

PJ Media, By Patrick Poole, October 20, 2014:

NOTE: Updates below this post

According to multiple reports, Canadian authorities are investigating a hit-and-run and subsequent high-speed car chase this morning in St. Jean sur Richelieu in Quebec province as a possible terror attack. (HT: Stewart Bell)

CBC reports:

A man in his 30s was shot by police in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., earlier this afternoon after he hit two members of the Canadian Forces with his car and led police on a dramatic high-speed chase.

The soldiers were hit in a parking lot of a commercial plaza at around 11:30 a.m. ET. Both were injured, one critically.

The incident was raised in the House of Commons this afternoon by Conservative MP Randy Hoback, who questioned Prime Minister Stephen Harper about “unconfirmed reports of a possible terror attack” targeting members of the Canadian Forces.

Harper, reading from a piece of paper, would only say he was ”aware of these reports” and that they are troubling.

Police have not named the soldiers but confirmed at an afternoon news conference that they were members of the armed forces.

Another report indicates that the suspect was inside the military office beforehand talking about ISIS and may be an ISIS sympathizer.

This incident comes weeks after ISIS called for Western supporters to attack and “slaughter soldiers” in their homes. The message made suggestions for such an attack:

“Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.”

“If you are unable to do so, then burn his home, car, or business. Or destroy his crops. If you are unable to do so, then spit in his face.”

If this is a confirmed attack, it may be a copycat attack based off of the May 2013 killing of British Army drummer Lee Rigby on the streets of Woolwich.

UPDATE: Stewart Bell directs to this report that the suspect (who has died from his wounds) is Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau, who was known to Canadian counterterrorism authorities.

UPDATE2: Rouleau’s Facebook page is filled with caliphate imagery.

UPDATE3: Here’s a picture of Rouleau from his Ummaland (Muslim social networking site) page, where is user name was “Ahmad the Convert”:

UPDATE4: Canadian Prime Minister’s Office says that Rouleau “had become radicalized”:

“The individual who struck the two CAF members with his car is known to federal authorities, including the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team,” said the statement from Jason MacDonald, the prime minister’s spokesman.

“Federal authorities have confirmed that there are clear indications that the individual had become radicalized. As Canada’s national security agencies have said, Canadians should remain vigilant.”

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Letter to Raytheon #StopQatarNow @StopQatarNow

10444640_541029836027957_3198265898780002919_nThomas A. Kennedy
Raytheon Company
870 Winter Street
Waltham, MA 02451-1449

Dear Dr. Kennedy:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.  The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar.  Raytheon, a major American military contractor and leading manufacturer of guided missiles, is set to be a substantial provider of sophisticated weapons systems to the terrorist-sponsor State of Qatar for many years; and has just reaffirmed their commitment to supply Qatar with surface-to-air missiles.

Qatar, however, is no mere sponsor of random terror.  Not only was Doha home to 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.  Indeed, Qatar is the principal country that supported the so-called “Arab Spring” uprisings, which saw the demise of Mubarak, Gaddafi, and nearly – possibly still – Bashar al-Assad.  The relevant point to consider regarding these revolutions is, cui bono?

It is a testament to Qatar’s dedication to Islamic supremacy, and concomitant mass-murder of the “infidel,” that in Egypt and Libya, the Qatari-hosted Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliated political parties came to dominate the countries’ governments.  In Syria, the Qatari-backed rebels, including the al-Nusra Front and even ISIS – are poised to assume control should the Assad regime fall.

As a direct result of these Qatari-backed uprisings, the Middle East and North Africa are quite literally in political and social chaos – anarchy.  Libya and Syria have become havens for transnational criminal syndicates, who traffic men, women, children, and narcotics for profit.  There is an ongoing genocide against any population who dares oppose the diabolical rule of the Islamic State, on a scale unseen in the Middle East since the genocide of the Armenians during World War I.

In light of these events and the Qatari coordination behind the scenes, it is distressing that Raytheon:

  • Just this month, announced that they would be proceeding with a $2 billion sale of sophisticated weaponry to Doha. Specifically, it is for $2 billion worth of Patriot Missiles Defense Systems.
  • Hosted students from Qatar University to “to give them up-front, hands-on demonstrations of technologies that have made Raytheon a powerhouse of innovation.”

Why provide America’s mortal enemies with the capacity to defend themselves?  Qatar can reasonably be blamed for turning the Middle East into a vast lawless region, where not even strongmen can check the indiscriminate killing, smuggling, and slaving.  Qatar has created exactly the kind of environment that existed in Afghanistan prior to 9/11, across three continents!

Additionally, Qatar it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell, and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  The only country with an “embassy” for the Taliban, Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Should Lockheed Martin Be Selling Arms to a State Sponsor of Terror? #StopQatarNow

6801 Rockledge Drive
Bethesda, MD 20817-1877

Dear Ms. Hewson:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.  The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar.  Lockheed Martin, a major American military contractor, has been one of the largest suppliers of sophisticated weapons systems to the terrorist-sponsor State of Qatar for several years.

For the better part of 2014, one of Qatar’s creations – the genocidal Islamic State (aka ISIS/ISIL) – has been on the warpath in Syria and Iraq.  The media reports are gruesome and horrifying: beheaded children, entire villages massacred, ancient Christian and Yazidi communities exterminated, and surrendered soldiers murdered in ways reminiscent of the Nazi Einsatzgruppen.  This is a genocide, and it is going on right now!

Is Lockheed Martin comfortable supplying this state with modern American weaponry?

Qatar is not only responsible for financing ISIS, but multiple infamous terrorist groups.  Indeed, the Qatari modus operandi has been to sow the seeds of various supremacist Islamist groups in the Middle East and North Africa, and use them to extract profit through the smuggling of human beings (i.e. slaves), and narcotics.

Boko Haram was established by a proxy of Qatar, who now resides in Doha, as a money-making venture.  This is the same Nigerian Islamist group which earlier this year kidnapped several hundred young Nigerian girls and sold them into sex slavery.

When Hamas launched thousands of rockets into Israel this summer, killing and wounding dozens of innocent Israelis, it was Qatar they looked to as their partner in terror.  These actions actually spawned a war, which continues to disrupt regional stability.

Since 2012, Lockheed Martin has been involved with multiple multi-billion dollar deals with this pernicious and violent sponsor of Islamic supremacism:

  • In July 2014, Lockheed Martin (and other companies) was part of an $11 billion arms deal to Qatar for Patriot air defense missiles.
  • In March 2014, Lockheed Martin (and other companies) was part of a $24 billion arms deal to Qatar for Patriot configuration-3 surface to air missiles.
  • In November 2012, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of the sale of $6.5 billion of Lockheed Martin air-defense interceptors, radar, parts, and support to Qatar.

Additionally, Qatar it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell, and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  The only country with an “embassy” for the Taliban, Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Is Boeing Looking the Other Way? #StopQatarNow

qatar_awareness_campaign_logoW. James McNerney
Boeing Corporate Offices
100 North Riverside
Chicago, Illinois 60606

Dear Mr. McNerney:

 

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.  The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar.  Why?  According to a senior Boeing executive last October, “The relationship [between Qatar and Boeing] is very strong; it’s kind of like a marriage.

Yet Qatar is perhaps the preeminent sponsor of terrorism in the world today, and a sponsor of the ISIS genocide!

Few companies in the country hold the same esteem in the public eye as The Boeing Company.  A manufacturer of commercial airplanes, and an indispensable military contractor, Boeing has helped build modern America.  It simply boggles the mind that Boeing has contracts with terrorist-friendly Qatar for state-of-the-art commercial and military systems that total tens of billions of dollars.

In July this year, Boeing announced an $18.9 billion dollar deal with Qatar Airways for 50 777-9Xs wide-body jets.  Qatar Airways also agreed to rights to purchase an additional 50, as well as four 777 Freighters, bringing the potential value of the deal to $39.8 billion.  Finally, Qatar is also set to deploy Boeing’s latest flagship 787 Dreamliner plane.

One may ask, why does a country with only 278,000 citizens, and a total population of two million people, need so many airplanes?  Doha is also a significant regional narcotics hub.  Indeed, Qatar is strategically partnered with a smuggler of Taliban heroin, the Pakistani National Logistics Cell.  Additionally, Qatar Airways’ flights have been found to carrying narcotics into Doha from South America.

Still, commercial contracts are but one side of the coin.  In March, Boeing agreed to supply Qatar with 24 Apache attack helicopters and three Boeing 737 Airborne early warning and control aircraft.  These sophisticated weapons systems are being sent to the same country which created the genocidal Islamic State.

Below are some supporting facts that should give Boeing a reason to file for “divorce” from their Qatari spouse:

  • In September 2011, in the course of 15 days, six drug mules were arrested in Ezeiza, Argentina carrying liquid cocaine. According to one official, “Ezeiza-Qatar is a new and rare route for drug trafficking. It exploded strong. On average, during the turn, there was one case every two days.”
  • In March 2013, suspects again were arrested in Argentina carrying narcotics. They were set to board a Qatar Airways flights to Doha.
  • Qatar is evidently using Boeing C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft to supply Islamists in Libya, where Egypt and the UAE are attempting to keep the country from allying itself fully with the Islamic State.
  • You, Mr. McNerney, are on a Trustee for Northwestern University. Northwestern has a campus in Doha whose development costs have been fully covered by the Qatar Foundation.

Qatar is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

Qatar Awareness Campaign – Letter to TUSD Warning of Qatar’s Academic Jihad #StopQatarNow

10444640_541029836027957_3198265898780002919_nAdelita S. Grijalva
Tucson Unified School District
1010 E. Tenth St.
Tucson, AZ 85719
Dear Ms. Grijalva:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.  The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar.  The Tucson Unified School District has accepted grant money from the Qatar Foundation to fund an Arabic language program.  Qatar is a state-sponsor of terrorism, including Hamas, who routinely use civilians, including children, as human shields.

Qatar is the host country of the Muslim Brotherhood, a stateless political organization which came to maturity at the same time as the Nazi Party in Germany.  Indeed, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Third Reich shared many of the same aims in World War II, including the extermination of Jews.  Their collaboration is well-documented.

A socially-minded, subversive organization, one particular focus of the Muslim Brotherhood has always been education.  In fact, the most prolific Brotherhood author and “philosopher” was the racist Sayyid Qutb, an inspector for the Egyptian Ministry of Education.  Likewise, Qatar as their host country, funds various educational initiatives around the globe, primarily through the Qatar Foundation.

Although Hamas’s disregard for civilian and children lives is notable, it is eclipsed by the wholesale violence committed by the Qatari-financed Islamic State (aka ISIS).  Mass executions of innocents shock the conscience, and the Islamic State enthusiastically cleanses its conquered territory of all who oppose it: Christians, Yazidis, and more secularly minded Muslims included.  The Islamic State even beheads young children, and teaches other children how to behead.

Here are additional facts regarding Qatar’s inroads to public education in the United States:

  • The Qatar Foundation International operates an Arabic Language and Culture program in partnership with public school systems. This includes, as of September 2013, the New York City Department of Education.
  • In May 2014, the Hurst-Euless-Bedford school district in Texas sent ten high school students to Qatar to learn Arabic through a grant by Qatar Foundation International. A few months later, Qatar-backed Hamas began a rocket offensive aimed at Israeli citizens.
  • The Al Harma Academy in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts is partnered with the Qatar Foundation International to offer full-immersion courses in Arabic. Al Hamra was accredited by the New England Association of School and Colleges 2007.
  • The Qatar Foundation’s WISE Initiative focuses on bringing Qatari ideals to education around the world. In this endeavor, they have a partner in the United Nations.

In light of your partnership with the Qatar Foundation consider that Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today.  It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state.  Qatar has leveraged its relationships with violent jihadi groups to its own benefit, and to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities.  The links cited are vetted and credible sources.  We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!
